How long would I have to wait to breastfeed again after smoking THC may i please have an a specific answer either days or months ?

THC and breast milk: It's very hard to answer you specifically, because thc is stored in your body fat. The breast and breast milk are highly made of fat, so your baby will receive thc through you. The length of time thc remains detectible in your system depends on how frequently you use this substance -- the longest being 90 days or 3 months.
